    Hi all,

    I just joined the site, and thought I’d say hi.

    I have 2 beautiful CBR’s:
    2003 954rr with ~20,000km. upgrades include (but not limited to):
    – Nissin radial master cylinder and Venhill stainless steel lines
    – RC51 SP-2 5 spoke wheels (Front wheel needed to change to 954 bearing, 109mm centre spacer, and machine 2 new side collars, each 1mm wider than the stock 954 collars. Rear was a bolt on replacement for stock)
    – Carbon fibre galore (front fender, air intake covers, sprocket cover, chain guards, rear hugger, street tail piece, passenger seat replacement cowl
    – Hindle slip on
    – Pazzo adjustable levers (need to install with the adjuster on bottom to avoid fairing contact with radial master cylinder)
    – Sargent Seat
    – Gilles Shift Shaft Support
    – GPR V4 stabiliser
    – GIPro-X gear position indicator
    – Namz PDM-60 power distribution Module
    – Oxford Heated Grips

    – GIPro-X gear position indicator
    – Corbin saddle
    – CBR954 front calipers & Master Cylinder with Venhill braided brake lines
    – Koso Apollo Heated Grips

    – Carbon Fibre front fender
    – Race-Tech re-valved & re-sprung suspension F&R
    – ABS rear hugger/chain gaurd

    Awesome. . I think that makes 3 of us in North American with the Euro Centre stand now, on this forum anyway! I made the mistake of ordering the mounting hardware from the UK not realizing that the mounting points on all non euro CBRs was totally different. . welcome to the forum!

    Happy Canada Day! and welcome from Connecticut.
    I was just in Montreal for work a few weeks ago. It looked very nice, from the windowless room they put us in. I also have a center stand on my ’91 F2. It’s fun to drag while riding and throw sparks at your buddies.

    Welcome to you from London (England) – that’s some list of mods lol.

    Also good to see someone else with a GIPro gear position indicator – did you fit it yourself? I just put one on my CBF1000 and very happy with it…

    Hi saturnv,

    That is a much more American than British username, from Apollo space program!

    I fit GIPro-X gear position indicators myself on both bikes. Access to the 600’s speed indicator sensor’s connector was very cramped, but otherwise very easy & straight forward.

    Yes it’s intentional :) The mighty Saturn Five launch vehicle; still the greatest rocket EVER built so far, but that was in the good old days before NASA ‘gave up’ on the Moon program when they realised they’d won the Space Race and the Cold War… Sorry about the cynical political bit!
    Yeah I’m a child of the Space Age, born in 1959 and I was 10 when Apollo 11 landed on the Moon ;-)
